Some glossary entires are unclear

Status in Ubuntu Manual: Fix Committed
This bug is in revision 143 of the e2 branch, but I'm sure exists in the others too.
A good number of the glossary entires are a bit confusing. Here's an example.
When you minimize an open application, it sits in an applet on a panel. If you click on a minimized applications panel button, it will then be restored to its normal state and allow you to interact with it.
Here's what I think would be a better definition for minimize, with no typo in it.
When you minimize an open application, the window will no longer be shown. If you click on a minimized application's panel button, it will then be restored to its normal state and allow you to interact with it.
Here's another example, for package:
Debian package files that hold the core information and code for applications to run.
An alternative might be:
Packages contain software in a ready-to-install format. Packages have a .deb extension in Ubuntu.
